The Bloomberg School of Public Health has a long tradition and a firm commitment to providing its students with instruction of the highest quality. Excellence in teaching stimulates intellectual curiosity in students and prepares them to address the most challenging public health problems facing the world today. Each term, the School recognizes faculty who have contributed significantly to the intellectual life of the School through their excellence in teaching.

Honorees are those instructors who received an average score of 3.6 or above (on a scale from a low of 1 to a high of 4) in both the Overall Course and Overall Instructor categories of their student course evaluations, with a response rate of 70% or higher. New this year, Summer and Winter Institute instructors are also recognized by the School for their contributions to excellence in teaching. The School would like to express our deep appreciation and congratulations to the following faculty members who have achieved teaching excellence so far in Academic Year 2016-2017.
